Now that I’ve made the jump over to a spiffy new WordPress installation, I have a ton of blog ideas that have been backing up on me. However, the first and most logical one to tackle is: Why eddyfate.com? That question has three different facets, which I’ll answer in turn.
Why A Blog?
I’ve been blogging in some form or fashion for about a decade now (back when I started on opendiary). I like blogging. I’ve been asked before why I like posting my thoughts online. Admittedly, I got asked that a lot more before the rise of Facebook and Twitter, but I still don’t have a really good answer for it. I think a lot of it is that I have a lot of very specialized interests, and blogging allows me to share those interests with an audience that might appreciate them. I’ve developed a solid group of friends and peers that can talk intelligently about those interests, but I never really lost the habit of blogging. Plus, it’s a good excuse to write.
